MODULE 1:

Manana Khvichia

Manana took the Cambridge CELTA teaching qualification and became an IH teacher herself. After taking the DELTA qualification at IH Poland, she became a Cambridge FCE & CAE examiner and then became a Cambridge CELTA teacher trainer. She is also a Business English and Advanced Methodology trainer for IH World, both face-to-face and online. She has mostly worked at IH Tbilisi, but also worked for three years at IH Kiev.

Manana is from Tbilisi and enjoys reading books and hanging out with friends in cafes.

The work is based on writing, reading, study and practice exam tasks. It focuses on understanding language, methodology and resources for teaching.

Study Topic – Study one topic area, write a short assignment, read and respond to other people’s assignments and tutor feedback.

Exam Practice Task – Do an exam practice task, read and respond to other people’s tasks and get personal tutor feedback and guidance. You will get a chance to see a large number of different approaches to tasks and be able to read tutors’ feedback on these – all of which can help you improve your own work.

The final units include a revision focus and two mock exams.

Historical and current theories of first and second language acquisition

Approaches and methodologies

Language systems and skills

Learner problems

Evaluating teaching and reference materials

Role and methods of assessment

Regular exam practice with constructive and helpful feedback from the most experienced Delta tutors

Online support, reflection and feedback from other members of your tutorial group

At the end of the course you can take the exam at a local exam centre. There is a list of centres on Cambridge ESOL's website so you can check the closest one to you. The exam takes place in June and December every year (always first Wednesday of the month). We make the arrangements for the exam on your behalf.

If you decide to sit the exam for the upcoming exam date we need to know at least two months beforehand to complete payment and booking procedures in good time. The exam fee is charged by ESOL and invoiced by the training centre on their behalf.

The exam itself is made up of two 1½ hour papers taken on the same day. Successful candidates will be issued with a Delta Module One certificate about three months after the exam with one of the following pass grades: pass, pass with merit, or pass with distinction. Certificates will be sent to the school and then passed on to the candidate.

Some universities accept Delta Module One as credit towards a Masters qualification. Course credits may vary, please enquire with the university directly

This module will be assessed through written assignments and teaching practice (5 lessons) which will be taken during the January/February block. The input sessions will take the form of lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, group activities and discussions but will usually be a combination of these formats. In addition to these contact hours, you will need to set aside about 300 hours for reading research and assignment writing if you are planning to do the two modules.

managing, supporting and maximising learning

planning and teaching lessons at different levels

developing the ability to observe and reflect on teaching

Assessment of Delta M2 is through a Teaching Practice Portfolio which consists of:

(1) Four language skills/systems assignments (LSA, two skills and two systems) that include a written element and assessed teaching practice, one of which is externally assessed. Each of these includes:

  • a background essay (2,000 – 2,500 words)
  • the planning, teaching and evaluation of an observed lesson related to the chosen area
  • The final lesson will be externally assessed, i.e. it will be assessed by a Cambridge ESOL registered external assessor

(2) A Professional Development Assignment (PDA) that involves identification of developmental needs and focus on these through the course along with an experimental teaching practice component. This includes:

  • Reflection and Action (including one diagnostic lesson observation) (2,000 – 2,500 words)
  • (Part 2) Experimental Practice. (2,000 – 2,500 words)

Successful candidates will be issued with a Delta Module One certificate about three months after the exam with one of the following pass grades: pass, pass with merit, or pass with distinction. Certificates will be sent to the school and then passed on to the candidate.

Some universities accept Delta Module One as credit towards a Masters qualification. Course credits may vary, please enquire with the university directly

We estimate that you need a minimum of 25 hours for each of the 4 LSA assignments and around 30 hours for the PDA assignment.
